This Winter by Alice Oseman + The Faerie Hounds of York by Arden Powell

The novella This Winter by Alice Oseman was great. It's Christmas Day at Tori and Charlie's and at Nick's.

The first part is from Tori's POV, the second one from Charlie's and there's a very short third one from Oliver's (Tori and Charlie's little brother). So it's less focused on Nick/Charlie ♥ than the novella simply called Nick and Charlie, which I talked about here. It deals more with Charlie's eating disorder and general mental health. *cuddles*

Just like the other novella, there are many cute illustrations drawn by Alice Oseman herself. It's a nice addition to the novel Solitaire and the webcomics Heartstopper.


The novella The Faerie Hounds of York by Arden Powell was fascinating. Loxley wakes up in a faerie ring and is saved by a mysterious stranger.

The story takes place at the beginning of the 19th century. The plot is intriguing and the writing style is lovely.

There is major m/m. <3 The love interest is Romani.
